Healthy Materials Lab: 🔊 Listen to Episode 4 of Trace Material


In Episode 4, we turn to¬†Winona LaDuke. Winona is a two-time Vice Presidential nominee, an internationally renowned environmentalist…and a hemp farmer.

With Winona’s help, we‚Äôre backing up a little bit to look at the context of the American hemp boom.¬†We know hemp has the potential to change our world, but what is it exactly about our world that needs to change? Part of what Winona thinks needs to change is our dependence on fossil fuels. Peter Hille, President the Mountain Association for Community and Economic Development would agree. He explains how extractive economies have ravaged Eastern Kentucky and lays out what a just transition for Appalachia will look like.

Join us to hear about¬†the road that our society has already walked – the scorched path, and the road¬†that is opening up to us –¬†the green path.
